For purpose tuning of your own car , regardless of what modification have been done you will have to have a custom tune which involves using the edit software rather than just downloading a generic program.

Customer tuning will involve dyno time which can be expensive.



this all sounds very confusing, can you explain it all a little better?

so what exactly would we be buying? just a blank chip which then needs dyno tuning? no software?

so im just buying a mod for my ecu which will allow a workshop to tune it for me? so say I do 10 mods - eg exhaust then later cam then later porting etc id have to go back to the workshop 1o times for them to do it?

say also I want to fine tune it myself, eg like backing off the timing or leaning it out in parts, I wouldnt be able to eh?

have I got the gist of it





Hi
Q1 - "say also I want to fine tune it myself, eg like backing off the timing or leaning it out in parts, I wouldn't be able to eh?"

A1. - to be able to make adjustments to the fuel or ignition maps you will have to buy the workshop version , which includes the necessary software.

Otherwise , yes your just buying a chipset that connects to your J3 port on the ecc4 or eec5 of the ecu port depending which vehicle you have

the chipset will have a modified program already on it .

That is the way Capa has constructed the chipset with SCT-USA in the same manner as what the flash-tuner is being used by BA and BF falcon users . There paying approx $895 for a interface card that connects to the OBD2 diagnostic connect and there transferring a modified program onto there ECU's ( there are 3 modified programs that someone has already done some tuning and it is just a case of transferring files.

But if you want to modify the fuel and or ignition files plus a lot more parameters you have to buy there workshop version of the software for the BA's and BF's to be able to do your own tuning .

The BA software alone is $2750-oo and you still have to buy a blank flashtuner box , every time you want to tune another car.

The E-series software alone is approx $1800 and you still have to buy a chipset box , every time you want to tune another E-series falcon .

Same principles applies to the E-series cars , every car has to have its own interface chipset card.
By joining this group purchase , cause I'm buying the whole package , software and hardware , on the initial purchase capa has structured that the flashtuner and chipset boxers are discounted heavily. Buying one chipset or flash tuner at a time there is a price difference of between 200 to 300 dollars.

Also i will share the files of programs that are out there already in the system , which will just cost people the the postage of there chipset or flashtuner boxers from them to me. People that live in my area will just be able to come to my work place and have the programs updated while they wait.

Private tailored tunes fro a specific vehicle , will be at a cost , dyno time ? otherwsie onr has to buy his/hers own software + chipset to do his/hers own tuning.

There is a lot of variables that need answering and information from capa is extremely hard to get a response. Since Capa has sewn this deal up with SCT flashtuner USA , any question in relation to the chipsets are all dealings via capa and things take time. So us aussies are at capa's mercy.

If one wants more information on flash tuner products go to SCT's website , http://www.sctflash.com/forum/forumdisp ... 932ab&f=98 unfortunately there is no information on there website about Australian cars , but there is a forum for Australian's a section just dedicated for Aussies. But there are working tutorials on the way the software works.

The Australian section of the forum is very quiet not much activity at all

As questions , lets see if you can awaken the sleepy bears at SCT.

cheers

Just 1 fundamental question. Would you be able to change to a larger map sensor and still be able to tune the car. Most people that want to turbo their atmo falcons would like to know this as they'd take an sct over a true aftermarket system any day if they could.


Hi

Unfortunately for turbo or supercharged E-series vehicles the answer is " NO "

I have asked this question to the capa camp , and the software doesn't have previsions to allow a 1 bar , 2 bar or 3 bar Map sensors.
It is a shame ,but i'm sure that SCT-USA are working on making the software more flexible for boost application of tuning the E-series cars

Guys the best and quickest place to ask questions is join http://www.sctflash.com/forum/ it is free and go to the international support section there is a AUstralian forum for flash tuner

Hi

CAPA via SCT-Flashtuner are the people who have developed the chipset

very similar in principle of its workings , YES

cheers

Question: How does this chip rate against the ol' UNI chip?

Hi

If we are talking about the ' UNICHIP " that APS markets here in Australia under there own badges by Peter Luckston , South Croydon ,VIC , Australia it doesn't compare at all.

Unichip does not give you the software and you can not get your hands on the software at all. Which means you always have to go back to one of APS franchise stores.

They have a monopoly on there product , plus if you decide to go that way there are cheaper units out there in the world that when you purchase the signal modifier you get all the hardware and software.

This enables you to use any dyno tuning shop or tune it on your own.

Unichip has it limitations , and remember unichip is a signal modifier , can not change rev limiter and so on.

cheers
